My place and yours - That's nice, that's different, that's unusual...

When I first read this week's My place and yours theme I thought I wouldn't be able to play. I had a quick walk around my house, nothing sprang to mind, so I lay down on my bed to call my Mum.

This is was the view from my bedroom door.

It took me a few seconds to realise that a trapeze inside the house is probably a bit unusual. A trapeze that can be swapped for a swing for Miss Pepper is probably not what you would find inside most houses, although I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Thanks heaps to this week's theme queen Little Suitcase, to see how other people interpret the theme pop on over to Ms Pip's place.

  4. Oh I need one of those too! My 1 year old would spend all his time outside on the swing if he could. We don't get much done inside as a result. One of these would be great! How cool is that! Is it for big kids too or only the little ones??? lol

  9. Isn't it funny how we don't view ourselves as unusual untill forced to take a good hard look! Love it...my place just isn't that cool though!

  10. That's it. You are officially the coolest mum in the whole entire world. I'm never showing my kids this post, lest I go down in their estimation.

  26. I love it. I also love it that it didn't strike you immediately as unusual. Fun!

  27. Hhhmmmm, let me think. A trapeze in the lounge room. Hmmmmm? Yes, I think you can safely say that is a bit unusual!!!

    Fantastic idea... for so many reasons, not the least that it so doesn't belong in the lounge room!

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
